Turkey With Oysters

Meal.Mates's picture
The other day I caught my aunt making Turkey With Oysters for her guests. Freshly cut celery, leeks and sauteed in chicken fat was tempting, as I stood next to her. A recipe with carefully chopped turkey, oysters coated up with butter, lots of cream and meat broth can never go wrong. Served hot with sprinkled fresh parsley is a must try.
  Celery ribs 4 , sliced on diagonal
  Diced onion 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Diced leek 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Garlic 1 Clove (5 gm), minced
  Butter/Rendered chicken fat 4 Tablespoon
  Unbleached flour 5 Tablespoon
  Milk/Half-and-half cream 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Turkey broth 4 Cup (64 tbs)
  Diced cooked turkey 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Freshly grated nutmeg 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  White pepper 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Fresh lemon juice 1 Teaspoon
  Shucked oysters 1 Pint, frizzled
  Butter 1 Tablespoon
  Minced fresh parsley 1 Tablespoon

Saute celery, onion, leeks and garlic in butter until onion is soft.
Sprinkle with flour, cook, stirring, 3 minutes, and gradually add milk and broth.
Cook and stir until smooth and thickened.
Add turkey, reheat and season with nutmeg, pepper, salt and lemon juice.
Adjust to taste.
Add oysters to hot soup and serve immediately with a generous sprinkling of minced parsley.
